Euro Disney SCA and Hertz have signed a new, five-year official
partnership agreement for Europe, Middle East and Africa.  The
two companies are also celebrating the 15th anniversary
of their partnership.

This partnership will continue to offer an array of services for
guests and Disney Cast Members (company employees) alike at
Disneyland Paris, Europe’s largest tourist destination, with over
15 million guests annually. Guests staying in any of the Resort’s
hotel rooms may use a direct line to the Hertz rental agency in
Chessy Marne-la-Vallée to rent a vehicle.  Cast Members may
also benefit from special rates when renting a vehicle or buying a
used vehicle from Hertz.

Hertz will continue to enjoy strong visibility throughout the
amusement theme park, with the ongoing sponsorship of Main Street
Vehicles, as well as the stroller rental service in the Resort’s
Disneyland Park and the Walt Disney Studios Park.  The Hertz
brand will also be present in various emblematic spots including in
the sets at Disney Studio 1 and on the car license plates of taxis
parked in front of Restaurant des Stars and Disney’s Hotel New

The renewed partnership also kickstarts a program of new joint
marketing activity with Disneyland Paris across Europe, and will
allow Hertz to develop relationships with the wider Disney
organization.  For example, Hertz will support the launch of
the Disney Cars 2 movie — one of the world’s largest global
entertainment franchises — across Europe this summer through
direct and online campaigns that include fun competitions. The car
rental company has also unveiled a new, Disney-themed children’s
play area at its London Heathrow Airport location as part of a
refurbishment program.

Michel Taride, President of Hertz International and Executive
Vice President, Hertz Corporation, said: “We are delighted to renew
for another five years this dynamic and historic partnership
between Euro Disney and Hertz. As companies with a shared vision
for superior quality and a great family experience, we have common
goals of delivering excellent service aimed at satisfying the needs
of extended families across Europe.”

“Strategic partnerships are one of the driving elements in the
growth of Disneyland Paris. The renewal of our partnership for
another five years represents new opportunities for both companies
to use their joint know-how to offer a top quality guest
experience,” declared Philippe Gas, CEO of Euro Disney SAS.
